National Peaches N’ Cream Day
Observed annually on June 21st, National Peaches ‘n’ Cream Day recognizes a sweet way to eat ripened peaches. It’s also a perfect way to begin and end the summer solstice. (See National Daylight Appreciation Day for the meaning of summer solstice.)
Peaches’ n’ Cream is a simple, traditional, and delicious summertime dessert. Of course, the Georgia peach is in season during the month of June, as are those grown in Florida, California, and South Carolina. Make some homemade vanilla ice cream to sweeten the deal, and your peaches’ n’ cream will be all the cooler.
Almost any seasonal fruit goes well with chilled cream, and peaches are no exception. The sweetness of the fruit combines with the silkiness of the cream for a refreshing summer treat. It’s so delicious, we keep coming back for more!
